This was a hard picture to take as I am a Magic fan. But easy to access right in the heart of downtown by the bay. Plenty to do before you catch an event here. Unfortunately there wasn't anything going on in there when we stopped.

My son, then 24, and I are big NBA fans. We saw the Heat play in 2013. What could be better than seeing LeBron James in person?

But what is wrong with most concerts? The music is so loud, even with great singers, it hurts the ears. For example, i am a great fan of elton john, but the music was so loud, i wanted to get out though i had gone to the concert to enjoy. Americans have so much commonsense, but this is one area...

The seats were very comfortable with reasonable leg room. Good selection of food. Staff were very helpful. Sound system was good but limited number of video screens.

We were staying in Coconut Grove and the front desk person at our hotel suggested we not take public transportation (bus or people mover) for safety reasons, and also suggested that getting a taxi after the event could be a problem. So... we drove. For those of us who are from smaller cities, the traffic getting to/from the arena can... More

We have been to several concerts and this venue is very nice. We have never had a bad seat Only suggestion is be ready to wait in line for a drink and use restroom before a break. Line gets ridiculous

Went to see Sam Smith 7/20/15. Performance was excellent sound was great! However, will never see anyone at AAA again. Parking $15.00, 1 beer $15.00 my guest had a rum and coke $20.00. I understand that a profit needs to be made but this just outright robbery. I could see $7.00, even $8.00 but $15.00 for 1 f-----beer. Never again!

Was great to experience a basketball game while on holiday, the stadium is good and the tickets were reasonably priced. Food options aren't great and the drinks are massively overpriced. But who goes for the food and drinks anyway. It's all for the fun of it!

We went to see Shania Twain in concert and paid to park in the garage attached to the arena. First, the directions to get into the parking garage are bizarre (if you are not careful you will drive onto the bridge taking you the port). Once we got in, we found the layout confusing, but fortunately took a picture to... More
